The people of Nepal celebrate this festival with enthusiasm every year. Mainly this festival is celebrated in the months of July-August on the 11th day after the Janmashtami (birth of God Krishna). All women have a fast for the well being of God Krishna on this day. For the other members of the family, there are cooked Kheer, Shel Roti and Achaar as food. We have been regularly celebrating Teej at the same place for the last three years.''

Today, all women living in the different part of Gurgaon met each other on this occasion. A number of people gathered to celebrate the festival. Apart from this, the festival was also celebrated in Choma village, Sector 21, Sector 17-18 and other parts of the city. Women enjoyed singing Nepali songs and men supported them by playing the instruments like madal and dumf (drum).

Om Prakash also added, ''We are very happy to see your unity and affection for each other. We wish you to maintain this forever.''
